Comtoyou Racing confirms four new Audis for 2021 WTCR season
Comtoyou Racing will be on the 2021 World Touring Car Cup grid with four new Audi RS 3 LMS race cars.
Frédéric Vervisch and Nathanaël Berthon will be provided to the team by Audi Sport while the remaining two drivers will be revealed “at a later date”.
“This gives us the opportunity to test our new model on different international race tracks and under the greatest competitive pressure,” said Chris Reinke, Head of Audi Sport customer racing.
Comtoyou Racing has been tasked with completing the development of the all-new Audi RS 3 LMS.
“We are pleased and excited about this new collaboration with our loyal partner Audi Sport. Our teams have been working together for more than five years and I am proud that they are giving us the opportunity to finalise the development of their new winning machine!” said team manager François Verbist.
Vervisch raced in the WTCR in 2019, finishing 12th overall for Comtoyou Racing, and took part in various GT3 programmes for Audi last year, winning the Nürburgring 24 hour race.
“I am very honoured and grateful to represent Audi and Comtoyou Racing in the WTCR with the new RS 3 LMS. Champion is the only goal I have for 2021!” said Vervisch.
Berthon raced for Comtoyou Racing in the WTCR last year, finishing eighth overall, and will take part in the development of the new car.
“It is a great motivation to come back to the WTCR with Comtoyou Racing and Audi Sport,” said Berthon.
“We have a lot of work ahead of us, especially development work. I have a great osmosis with the team, and it is certainly a force that add more weight to achieve our common ambitions.”
